I am trying to Import some data from an excel spreadsheet using the TransferSpreadsheet method and I cannot seem to get the Worksheet part correct with the range.

I am using:  

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, "ExcelTally1", fileName, False, "Excel_Export1"

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, "ExcelTally2", fileName, False, "Excel_Export2"

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, "ExcelTally3", fileName, False, "Excel_Export3"

But it fails each time.
